Newbridge Heights Public School is committed to providing the best in public education to its students through a comprehensive education with literacy and numeracy at the core.

Opened in 1980, the school has grown with its community and now enrols 575 students from the ages of five to 12.

The curriculum is structured around the six key learning areas of English, Mathematics, Human Society and its Environment, Science and Technology, Personal Development Health and Physical Education and Creative and Performing Arts. In each of these areas the school is proud of its record of achievement.

Newbridge Heights also offers a number of extra curricula activities including dance groups, drama groups, environmental monitors, a Student Representative Council and many more. Sports are another strong suit of the school and during 2021 the school has had state representation at swimming, basketball and cross country carnivals.

In addition to the culture of academic excellence found throughout the school and in each of the classes, Newbright Heights Public School has an Opportunity Class in grades 5 and 6 to which students from the school and in surrounding areas can apply.

Principal Irene Faros said the whole school supports students to achieve in their areas of excellence.

"We are very proud of the number of students that gain entry into selective high schools. In 2020, it was 23 students. This year our two dance groups were selected to participate in the 'In the Spotlight Festival' which was recently held at The Seymour Centre."

While visits during Education Week had to be rescheduled due to the recent lockdown, the school had planned to showcase the various talents that students have developed at school including the gymnastics and Jellybeans music program, as well as open classrooms and NAIDOC celebrations.

Principal Faros said the school was committed to building connections with parents and carers as well as the wider community when the easing of restrictions allows. The school hopes to facilitate a learning community which enables students to be articulate, self-motivated lifelong learners.
